Application Abreviews Notes
ELISA 1/5000.
ICC/IF 1/100 - 1/500.
WB 1/500 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 52 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 52 kDa).


  • Function
    Ligand-activated transcription factor. Key regulator of lipid metabolism. Activated by the endogenous ligand 1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl-sn-glycerol-3-phosphocholine (16:0/18:1-GPC). Activated by oleylethanolamide, a naturally occurring lipid that regulates satiety (By similarity). Receptor for peroxisome proliferators such as hypolipidemic drugs and fatty acids. Regulates the peroxisomal beta-oxidation pathway of fatty acids. Functions as transcription activator for the ACOX1 and P450 genes. Transactivation activity requires heterodimerization with RXRA and is antagonized by NR2C2.
  • Tissue specificity
    Skeletal muscle, liver, heart and kidney.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the nuclear hormone receptor family. NR1 subfamily.
    Contains 1 nuclear receptor DNA-binding domain.

Yes, but none that are raised against an intracellular domain. For instance, ab13438 is raised against an intact cell preparation. The clone, Q4120, blocks the receptor, confirming that the epitope it recognizes is extracellular.
